be still my heart

"Mr. Bennet was so odd a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice . . . "

Let's get to the important matter at hand: The handsome Mr. Bennett did NOT get enough screen time.

He had me at hello. Ouch, I know. That's really tired. But Mr. B. looked bemused when he walked into the apartment and that's sexy to smart girls. Or at least to the sarcastic ones. Who knows. Maybe he was grimacing. But it is more fun to imagine a sensibility that is wry rather than worn. N'est-ce pas?

And how sweet is the way that he has his arm around Laura?

Word from the Un-Wise:
Kora does not imagine her life as a template for anyone with their head screwed on and for those who are screwed up it is even less of a model to follow, given her noted tendency to not always do as she is told . . .

. . . and furthermore, in ways of the heart there is no wisdom to be offered because, of course, it is all pure folly but she will say this:
It is impossible to underestimate the importance of being completely adored by one's husband, especially when one is a strong-willed woman with a brain, an education, an artistic temperament and a biting wit.

Others might say stubborn, loony and bitchy but then what would they know from brilliance?

(note: I do know that Mr. B. is actually Mr. S. but I like the JA allusion.)
